Worship of the Church: A Handbook for Those Involved in Liturgical Ministries (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Beginning a new liturgical ministry in the Church can be a perplexing business, with a range of terms and practices that may be unfamiliar. Worship, in the Church of England in particular, varies enormously from place to place, and each community brings to the liturgical framework their own style and interpretation. This Handbook provides a comprehensive guide to ceremonial practice and is a resource for those who prepare worship in the Church, offering clear and simple guidelines that each community can then make their own. Section one provides a step by step guide to the Sunday Parish Eucharist. Beginning with the preparations of the Sacristan, and the essential housekeeping tasks that take place before Sunday Worship, it then moves on to cover the basic liturgical principles for the presiding priest and servers as they lead the people in worship. After a section on the 'Occasional Offices', the Handbook then covers the Christian Year, and the colours, ceremonial and distinctive features of the seasons of the church year. A glossary of liturgical terms concludes the Handbook.
